Moving sucks, and address changes are the worst. Updater’s founder tells us about their (brilliant) solution.
We sat down with David Greenberg, founder of NYC-based Updater, to discuss all that is wrong and miserable about moving. Lucky for us (and you), Updater’s solution allows you to sync and manage all of your addresses in a single portal. When you move, you simply enter your new address, and Updater does the rest of the work, pushing address change notifications to all the relevant newspaper, magazine and other subscriptions you may have.
They do you another solid by cutting out junk mail and the black hole that seems to trap your mail for weeks after each move.
Already the top address change service in the US, the startup is pushing address changes to more than 2,500 businesses on behalf of users. Word on the street is that sometime in the near future you’ll be able to move your cable and phone services through Updater too. We can’t wait (though if they could make it happen before our lease is up in July we’d be extremely appreciative).
Now if only someone would come up with an elegant solution to spackling.
